Ava DuVernay Recruits Sade, Sia, 'Game of Thrones' Composer for 'A Wrinkle in Time' Soundtrack
The film and the soundtrack will be released March 9.
A Wrinkle in Time's heavyweight cast caused massive tremors after it was revealed that Oprah Winfrey would play a huge role in the film. Director Ava DuVernay hit fans with another huge wave of news, this time explaining that the movie's soundtrack would feature an equally powerful cast.
In a tweet Tuesday, the filmmaker excitedly revealed that Sade crafted an original song for the film.
"I never thought she’d say yes, but asked anyway. She was kind + giving. A goddess. We began a journey together that I’ll never forget. Proud to announce that Sade has created an original song for WRINKLE IN TIME. It’s entitled 'Flower of the Universe.' And it’s a dream come true," wrote DuVernay.
The director also announced that Sia would provide an original song as well. The soundtrack is set to include more original tunes from Kehlani, DJ Khaled and Demi Lovato, Chloe x Halle and FreeStyle Fellowship, as well. Game of Thrones composer Ramin Djawadi will help craft the score.
Disney's A Wrinkle in Time is set to premiere March 9.

Happy to share that WRINKLE IN TIME’s soundtrack also includes original music by none other than Sia. I remember being blown away by her SPEAKING VOICE ON THE PHONE. So when she shared the song she wrote for Meg, I was spellbound. It’s called “Magic.” And it is. Thank you, @Sia. pic.twitter.com/PioLASDipQ— Ava DuVernay (@ava) February 20, 2018
